Mastercam and 20-20 Technologies have partnered to integrate their CAM and CAD softwares.
Customers can now design in 20-20 Design or ShopWare CAD and output information to Mastercam to automate the tool path and nest parts, and post out the code.
The manufacturing software manages all parts, materials and reports, and releases the parts for machining, which creates DXF files and a worklist. And since all of these steps are parametrically connected, the process is seamless, according to Mastercam. The DXF files are fed into Mastercam ATP, which generates the toolpaths, nests the parts, and generates the code for a specific machine.
